For the oenophile, wine tourism is a wonderful way to better understand terroir, the difficult to define concept that wine makers often use to describe a key component of their art. Tasting wine at a wine shop or in the comfort of home provide a hint at the terroir that produced the wine. Spending several days visiting the area, chatting with the wine makers and growers, and eating the local cuisine (which has evolved to perfectly complement the wine) will provide an exceptional context for the wine and give deep insight into why and how the wine turned out the way it did.
